FAU WAS VOTED #5 for BEST COLLEGES BY THE SEA

There is something about the sea that is magical to many, people are drawn to the sea, and they want to live by it, swim in it, and write poems about it.

When one is considering the next chapter or trajectory of where to pursue a higher education, the setting that surrounds that expanse plays a huge factor in consideration. College is about classes and degrees but also about the location where one would be spending the most important rising years of someone life. The location is vivacious, don’t you agree?!  

A compiled list of the 50 best sea-side locations for a higher education was formed on this methodology and determined the rankings:  
• Proximity to the beach (50%).
• Specific marine educational centers, degrees, or research facilities (30%).
• Recreational opportunities on the sea (20%).

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) came in as #5 for the Best Sea-side Locations for a Higher Education. Beach lovers will be exceptionally happy as FAU’s main campus which offers a great education within the sub-tropical area of Boca Raton, Florida. Florida Atlantic University actually has five other satellite campuses too. “It belongs to the 12-campus State University System of Florida and serves South Florida, which has a population of more than five million people and spans more than 100 miles of coastline.” However, when you are free to catch a break from the books, going to the beach to relax, unwind and take the pressure off is easy to do within less than a mile from the campus.

“Living by the sea can provide recreation, beauty, and educational opportunity.”
